Calgary Flames Trade Michael Frolik To Buffalo

The Flames will get a pick in the 2020 draft from the Sabres.



One of the long rumoured Flames to be traded is on the move. The Flames sent veteran forward Michael Frolik to the Buffalo Sabres for a 4th Round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft Thursday night. A bonus for the Flames is they won't have to eat any of Frolik's salary, which is valued at $4.3 million dollars for 2019-20. Frolik is an UFA at the end of the season. Buffalo will take on the remainder of his salary for the season.

The Czech Republic native spent 5 1/2 seasons with the Flames, playing in 319 games and scoring 63 goals and compiling 82 assists over that time frame. Frolik's play had declined over the last season and a half and the veteran was a healthy scratch at times. His name had frequently been tossed around as a potential target to be traded and his sub-par play has made him expendable.
